Update the tests and documentation to match the new "last one determines its fate" semantics. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-07-29Tutorial: use a bit longer sample filenames.Junio C Hamano
Darrin Thompson noticed when he was showing off GIT to others that the use of filenames "a" and "b" in the tutorial example was unnecessarily confusing, especially with our "patch -p1" prefix a/ and b/, without giving us any patch. I was very tempted to change them back to l/ and k/ prefixes, but decided to restrain myself and update the tutorial instead ;-). Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>

2005-07-23Update tutorial.txt branches/tags to use the nicer helper syntaxLinus Torvalds
Teach people to use "git tag <tag-name>" instead of writing the current HEAD by hand into the .git/refs/tags/<tag-name> file. Most people probably don't really want to know about how git does things internally.
2005-07-23[PATCH] tutorial: mention "git clone" records .git/branches/originJunio C Hamano
Update the recommended workflow for individual developers. While they are tracking the origin, refs/heads/origin is updated by "git fetch", so there is no need to manually copy FETCH_HEAD to refs/heads/ anywhere.

2005-07-15[PATCH] Add git-var a tool for reading interesting git variables.Eric W. Biederman
Sharing code between shell scripts and C is a challenge. The program git-var allows us to have a set of named values that a shell script can interrogate and a normal C program can simply call the functions that compute them. Allowing sharing when computing plain test values. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-07-14[PATCH] Documentation: push-pull commands into a separate category.Junio C Hamano

2005-07-14[PATCH] clone-pack and clone-script: documentation and add a missing parameter.Junio C Hamano
While adding the documentation for these two commands, I noticed that the name of the program on the other end (git-upload-pack) is already almost configurable but git-clone-pack lacked command line parameter parsing to actually use anything but default, so I introduced --exec= like other remote commands while I was at it.

git-cvsimport-script: add "import only" option which tells the script not to perform a checkout after importing.

Add notes on branches, merging, tagging, and update some of the usage to the friendlier "git cmd" syntax. It's still ridiculously lacking, but perhaps it's a _bit_ more useful.
2005-07-09[PATCH] Add --info-only option to git-update-cache.Bryan Larsen
Add --info-only option to git-update-cache. [JC demangled whitespace from the posted patch himself because he liked it so much.

2005-07-09[PATCH] Expose object ID computation functions.Bryan Larsen
This patch makes the first half of write_sha1_file() and index_fd() externally visible, to allow callers to compute the object ID without actually storing it in the object database. [JC demangled the whitespaces himself because he liked the patch so much, and reworked the interface to index_fd() slightly, taking suggestion from Linus and of his own.] Signed-off-by: Bryan Larsen <bryan.larsen@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2005-07-03Make specification of CVS module to convert optional.Sven Verdoolaege
If we're inside a checked out CVS repository, there is no need to explicitly specify the module as it is available in CVS/Repository. Also read CVS/Root if it's available and -d is not specified. Finally, explicitly pass root to cvsps as CVS/Root takes precedence over CVSROOT. Signed-off-by: Sven Verdoolaege <skimo@kotnet.org>

2005-06-29[PATCH] Add git-verify-pack command.Junio C Hamano
Given a list of <pack>.idx files, this command validates the index file and the corresponding .pack file for consistency. This patch also uses the same validation mechanism in fsck-cache when the --full flag is used. During normal operation, sha1_file.c verifies that a given .idx file matches the .pack file by comparing the SHA1 checksum stored in .idx file and .pack file as a minimum sanity check. We may further want to check the pack signature and version when we map the pack, but that would be a separate patch. Earlier, errors to map a pack file was not flagged fatal but led to a random fatal error later. This version explicitly die()s when such an error is detected.

2005-06-28[PATCH] Update fsck-cache (take 2)Junio C Hamano
The fsck-cache complains if objects referred to by files in .git/refs/ or objects stored in files under .git/objects/??/ are not found as stand-alone SHA1 files (i.e. found in alternate object pools GIT_ALTERNATE_OBJECT_DIRECTORIES or packed archives stored under .git/objects/pack). Although this is a good semantics to maintain consistency of a single .git/objects directory as a self contained set of objects, it sometimes is useful to consider it is OK as long as these "outside" objects are available. This commit introduces a new flag, --standalone, to git-fsck-cache. When it is not specified, connectivity checks and .git/refs pointer checks are taught that it is OK when expected objects do not exist under .git/objects/?? hierarchy but are available from an packed archive or in an alternate object pool. Another new flag, --full, makes git-fsck-cache to check not only the current GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY but also objects found in alternate object pools and packed GIT archives.a Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2005-06-28[PATCH] git-cat-file: '-s' to find out object size.Junio C Hamano
We use sha1_object_info() now, and getting size is also trivial. I admit that this is more of "because we can" not "because I see immediate need for it", though. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-06-27[PATCH] Remove "delta" object representation.Junio C Hamano
Packed delta files created by git-pack-objects seems to be the way to go, and existing "delta" object handling code has exposed the object representation details to too many places. Remove it while we refactor code to come up with a proper interface in sha1_file.c. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-06-27[PATCH] git-ssh-pull: commit-id consistencySven Verdoolaege
